MARCONI WIRELESS TELEGRAPH COMPANY'S RADIO, V2 MODEL, 1922

2 valve reflex circuit, manufactured between 1922 and 1926. Original cost 22.8s.0d reducing to 15.16s.2d in 1925, and to 8.0s.0d in 1926.

Your comments:

  • Although your receiver pre-dates the Marconiphone 2A, there were about 5,000 earlier V2 sets built before the BBC authorized regenerative receivers to be offered commercially. Those sets lack the regenerator block seen on the right-hand side.

  • The Marconiphone division manufactured a limited number of an earlier version of this wireless receiver without the BBC transfer nor the resonator block seen on the right side of the chassis. More information here: http://dighera.com/marconiphone_v2_early_version.htm

  • My dream wireless. Similar to my grandfather's Sterling 2 valve of the same period (I must get it out and clean it up)
